Book Review - Marriage in Middlebury


One decision changed both their lives . . . but will love win in the end? Charlotte Rose Hill enjoys a comfortable life serving up country delicacies, uniquely blended teas, and matchmaking advice for her quirky, devoted customers. The only thing lacking is someone to share it with. At eighteen she denied Sam Wilder's marriage proposal after his family convinced her to walk away from their relationship. They both moved on . . . or so she thought. When Sam walks back into her life more than a decade later, Charlotte is surprised that her heart still quickens. But is it because of his presence? Or because of the presence of Sam's new fiancée? A second chance at love doesn't happen often, but their past may keep them apart. Is it too late for Sam and Charlotte?

This was a very enjoyable book about Charlotte, who owns a tea shop, and Sam, her high school sweetheart. It's about love that never dies, finding the person who truly makes you feel loved and whom you love back without reservation. 

Charlotte is someone that everyone cares about in the little town of Middlebury. She is in her late thirties and has made a life for herself after losing the love of her life by turning down his marriage proposal years ago. The reason for her refusal becomes clear in the opening pages of the book when Sam shows up back in town with his new fiance, Audrey. 

There's also Justin, the man who is a drifter, doing odd jobs and sleeping on a cot in the back of the church. There's more to his story and he plays a pivotal role in the story between Audrey, Sam and Charlotte. I also loved Pastor Wally and Meredith, the antique shop owner. Nelly, who worked for Sam's father and now for Sam, is a very wise and sweet woman that really adds to the story, too.

This story was just so sweet and had enough twists and turns to keep you interested. I enjoyed reading it because it showed how we can change things in our life and how important it is to trust God to work things out. I loved that it was an easy read that just pulled me into the story. I think you'd really enjoy this story as much as I did!
